    This paper describes a CAI system being used in an introductory computer science course. The system is generative in the sense that it generates its own problems, derives its own solutions, monitors student solutions, and generates remedial statements. Due to its generative nature, the system provides a great deal of individualization of instruction. It selects the path taken by each student throu... View full abstract»

  • A Modified Form of PSI Employed in an Introductory Electrical Engineering Course

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):189 - 192
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (845 KB)

    An experimental teaching strategy was employed in a three-quarter introductory Electrical Engineering course. The system was designed to combine the best features of PSI (Proctoral System of Instruction, also known as the Keller Method) and the conventional system, in the context of engineering education. The most important feature is that it allows students to master every assigned problem and re... View full abstract»

  • Electrical Properties of Silicon in UHV: Two Experiments for Undergraduates

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):192 - 194
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (560 KB)

    Two instructional experiments related to the temperature dependence of the electrical conductivity and to the thermionic emission properties of single crystal silicon have been performed in ultra-high vacuum. The measurements are straightforward, using standard electronic components, and can be successfully completed by senior electrical engineering students in one semester. The experiments form a...

    A simple, inexpensive, special-purpose digital computer was built to exemplify the obvious as well as the subtle properties of correlation. The method augmented the usual mathematical introduction of this material. Using such common peripheral equipment as a function generator with V.C.O. capabilities, analog noise generator and oscilloscope, such concepts as auto-and-cross-correlation, stochastic...

    In the Winter Quarter 1972 the Electrical Engineering Department at Ohio State offered a new course for nonengineering students. The course followed the text, The Man Made World, and included a film and guest lecture series. The 25 students who completed the course achieved some appreciation for and facility with quantitative procedures for solving problems and indicated their approval of the cour... View full abstract»

    This article describes two courses on the technology of communication and transportation designed for non-science students. The courses combine lectures on technology and student presentations on the interaction of the technology with their own areas of interest. The course content is presented and the method of teaching is explained. This article describes two courses on technology that have been... View full abstract»

    The solution of a variety of physical problems is possible by the analog approach using available circuit analysis programs such as ECAP and SCEPTRE. The solution of Laplaces equation for a square trough, the frequency response for a rotational mechanical system, and the thermal response in a rocket are presented as illustrative examples.

    Several systems exist for the purpose of assisting the instructor in evaluating class comprehension by monitoring their individual and/or collective responses to multiple-choice questions. Such a system, the Student-Teacher Interface System (STIS), is described and its capabilities are compared with those of other systems. The STIS is a special-purpose digital processor which provides a considerab... View full abstract»
